ARRB is pleased to present a two-day workshop on drainage based on the Austroads Guide to Road Design Parts
5, 5a & 5b. The drainage guides will provide designers with information to appropriately manage stormwater run-off through the design of efficient and effective road drainage systems.
The course covers all the basic hydrological and hydraulic calculations required for good road design. Although concentrating on road design applications, learning outcomes can be applied to all drainage design projects incorporating small to medium sized catchments.
16 - 17 March 2021
Learning outcomes include:
- Familiarising road designers and civil engineers with current best practice in road drainage design (based on the Austroads Guide to Road Design Parts 5, 5a and 5b published in May 2013) and relevant aspects of the Austroads Guide to Bridge Technology Part 8, 2018.
- Outlining application of “Australian Rainfall and Runoff” to road drainage design.
- Describing how drainage conditions can influence road design, road location, design elements and associated structures.
- Providing training focused on meeting local requirements with associated case studies.
- Providing approval authority practitioners with the skills to assess consultant designs and applications.
